Product Description

Four years after winning the best-student-of-the-year trophy from his architectural college, and with designs to set the Canadian landscape on fire, Raj Malhotra (Shahid Kapur) is still struggling to find that One Chance to showcase his mettle.


When he misses out on yet another opportunity due to fate's cruel intervention, he starts losing heart. However, fate has another trick up its sleeve for Raj.


He stumbles upon a quirky oracle, Hasina Bano Jaan (Juhi Chawla). She advises him to find and keep a charm by him, that would change his stars and make everything work in his favor.


Raj through his endeavors of finding his charm, to his surprise discovers that charm to be a girl, Priya (Vidya Balan), who has shared unpleasant encounters with him earlier. Also, she is opposed to the very project that he desperately wants to work on... his ambitious dream project.


Raj pretends to help her with her cause while pushing his own agenda. But there are two problems. One, he falls in love with her and doesn't want to cheat her and Two, she discovers the truth about him before he can tell her.

Shahid Kapoor


Shahid Kapoor born February 25, 1981 in Mumbai, India is a Bollywood actor and model.


Shahid was born to actor Pankaj Kapoor (Karamchand) fame and actress/classical dancer Neelima Azeem. His parents divorced when he was three and he usually lived with his mother. His step-mother is Supriya Pathak. Shahid Kapoor has a little brother and sister called Ruhan and Sanaa. He's also the step brother of Ishaan Kapoor who he starred with in the film Vaah! Life Ho To Aisi.


He is a trained dancer and studied dancing with Shiamak Davar. He did extra roles and has starred in several music videos and commercials.


His debut film "Ishq Vishk" (2003) was a success. He received the Filmfare Award 2003 in the Debut category for his performance along with the same award from the Star Screen Awards and the Zee Cine Awards.


In 2004, he starred in two more films: Fida, a thriller co-starring Kareena Kapoor and Fardeen Khan as well as, Dil Maange More, a romantic comedy alongside Soha Ali Khan, Tulip Joshi, and Ayesha Takia. Both films bombed at the box office, and Kapoor received positive reviews for his performances.


In 2005 all three of his films, Vaah! Life Ho To Aisi, Deewane Huye Pagal, and Shikhar failed to do well at the box office but his performances were praised. He received a Star Screen Best Actor Nomination for his work in Shikhar. In 2006, Shahid received his first box office success since his debut with the multi-starrer, 36 China Town. Despite mixed reviews the comic-thriller became an above-average success.


Shortly after the release of 36 China Town, Shahid's second 2006 release, Chup Chup Ke released, which was an average success.In the summer of 2006, Shahid embarked on a World Tour along with fellow Bollywood stars, Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor, John Abraham, Esha Deol, Mallika Sherawat and Zayed Khan.


His most recent film Vivah along with Amrita Rao was a blockbuster despite its outdated theme, continuing steady in the top five at the Indian box office even in its thirteenth week.His performance was well appreciated with audiences and critics both in India and abroad.

Vidya Balan (born January 1, 1979, in Palakkad, Kerala) is an award-winning Indian actress who appears in Bollywood movies. She is a Malayali from Kerala.


Vidya Balan, who began her career starring in many music videos and soap operas, made her acting debut in the Bengali film, Bhalo Thek (2003), for which she won critical acclaim, and had her Hindi film debut with Parineeta (2005), for which she received a Filmfare Best Debut Award. She received her first commercial success with Rajkumar Hirani's Lage Raho Munna Bhai (2006), and thus has established herself as one of the most promising actresses in the industry.


Although born in Palakkad to Tamil Iyer parents in Kerala, Vidya Balan grew up in Mumbai and attended St. Anthony's Girls High School, St. Xavier's College, Bombay and later the University of Mumbai. She graduated from college with a Sociology degree. She speaks several languages including Tamil, Malayalam, English, Hindi, and Bengali.

In 2006 she appeared opposite Sanjay Dutt in the film Lage Raho Munna Bhai. The movie was a major hit within India and was ranked No 1 on the box office for eight weeks after its release.

The surface premise may be about Raj finding and holding on to his lucky charm, but, clearly, the dominant theme is: does love win out over ambition?

This is a very good movie, the plot is good, acting is good.

Format: DVD
For fans of Shahid Kapoor, KISMAT KONNECTION is a bit of a letdown after the heights achieved by Jab We Met - DVD. This one tells of an NRI romance, this time taking place in Toronto, Canada - and, incidentally, isn't it funny that, in every Bollywood flick staged somewhere other than India, each random person the main characters meet on the street is still able to speak Hindi?

Architect Raj Malhotra (Shahid Kapoor), a standout pupil in college, just cannot get play in his profession. Still waiting for that big career break, Raj instead for the past few years has suffered a string of ridiculous bad luck. Consulting a fortune teller, he is advised to seek out his lucky charm... and then to keep it safely with him (well, duh!). Meanwhile, Raj keeps running into this aggravating girl, Priya (Vidya Balan) - and it's only after a while that it strikes him finally that, in her vicinity, fortune seems to favor him.

Meanwhile, we follow a side-plot concerning Raj pursuing a contract with a construction company. The caveat is that this company intends to supplant a community center with a shopping mall, and that Priya is championing the preservation of this community center. Which leaves Raj in a muddle.

The surface premise may be about Raj finding and holding on to his lucky charm, but, clearly, the dominant theme is: does love win out over ambition? So KISMAT KONNECTION is a love story. Thing is, the film does suffer somewhat because the romance is done by the numbers and because of the lack of sizzle between Shahid Kapoor and Vidya Balan. And that last part can be murder.

Format: DVD
Actor Shahid Kapoor followed up his acclaimed hit 'Jab We Met' (2007) with another romantic comedy that's funnier but lacks the emotional zing of his preceding picture. Kapoor's character, Raj, was a popular overachiever in school and voted most likely to succeed by his classmates, but five years after graduation, he's failed to take the world by storm because he's plagued with bad luck. Everything that could possibly go wrong for him does--until he meets Priya (played by Vidya Balan), and his fortune starts to change. He doesn't realize the connection at first because she seems like another source of problems for him, but their confrontations keep inadvertently advancing his career as an architect. There's little sense of underlying attraction in their prickly interactions, and when he catches on that she's his lucky charm and falls in love with her, it isn't convincing. Kapoor can always pull off the pining lover, but there's no magnetism between the leads. Still, it's a charming story about surrendering to the whims of fate. - The Bollywood Ticket: The American guide to Indian movies (Subscribe: The Bollywood Ticket)

Format: DVD
This movie moves at a leisurely pace. The acting is average across the board, including that of Om Puri. It was delightful to see Boman Irani towards the end of the movie.

The story is located in Canada (Toronto). Raj Malhotra (Shahid Kapoor) is a clientless independent Architect, who manages to get a prospect interested in what turns out to be a dog house project. Then, a "ten dollar" Crystal Grazer (Juhi Chawla) reveals that a lucky charm is imminent. Enter Priya (Vidya Balan), the lucky charm. Shahid's career starts to take off. In one of his "make or break" project proposals, there is talk of giving a human face to Big Business. There is also a Good Samaritan, a "waving friend".

The story is a delightful, goodie - goodie, Bollywood love story, with no villainy or harshness. And, it has an happy ending. However, the songs are nondescript.

You are not missing anything if you miss this movie.

This was a really nice way to spend some hours. It isn't a deep one but it has a certain quality to it that doesn't make it entirely superficial either. For its romantic genre it fits the bill.
The title suggests it's about a couple fated to be together but the story is a little more than that. It is about fate and luck generally and the girl being his lucky charm when things go right for him. There is also a psychic (played delightfully by an eccentric looking Judi Chawla) who coaches the hero about working with fate.
The hero is played by Shahid Kapoor. He is charismatic and draws the eye on screen but he isn't just a pretty face. Not only is he handsome but he acts and moves well. As a trained dancer his dancing is always worth watching and he conveys emotions well.
There is good chemistry between he and Vidya Blan his lucky charm. There are a few good songs and a fairly sustained interest in the pace to the romance.
It is a movie with heart with a co-theme of whether business can work with also finding a way to assist others rather than just going for the bottom line.
The movie is set in Canada and very contemporary in feel. I recommend it for good light entertainment.
I would like the manufacturers of these DVDs to see if they can do something about end credits that accompany a final song. These are reduced to extremely small size when played on a home TV screen. You access this same small format even if you retrieve them through the songs menu. The size and concept work well on a cinema screen but need to be transformed in some way for the home screen.
